Trying the Triathlon - 31st July 2011
Recent new Bedfordshire Sands’ member Matt Clark has taken up the challenge of the London Triathlon to raise funds and awareness for a bereavement suite at Bedford hospital. The event consists of a 1500m swim in Victoria Dock (adjacent to ExCel arena), followed by a 40km bike ride and a 10km run. Matt, and his wife Jo, have already had very positive meetings with Bedford Hospital and look forward to working with them to get the bereavement suite built within the existing maternity wing. The hospital is currently looking into employing an architect and arranging for quotations for the work.
A Just Giving page has been set up for anyone who would like to donate to this fabulous project at: www.justgiving.com/kyles-bereavementsuite. This also gives you the opportunity to read Jo and Matt’s story and find out why they came to Bedfordshire Sands
